Question about Keurig B60 Coffee Maker
Where is the lead in the coffeemaker that the manual warns about and how many instances of cancer have been traced to that?
The solder joint in the tubing. Personally, I don't see a risk but the environmentalists see a risk in any lead at all. The plumbing in my house has ALL lead soldered joints. Now, plumbers are not allowed to use lead type solder. If the water just passes over the lead, there is absolutely minimal chance of problems. Keeping wine in a lead crystal decantor will also leech lead into the drink but, you don't hear all the hype about that. It's all about making the earth green. Toy wagons are being recalled because of lead in the paint. I don't know of ANY kids who ever ATE their wagon.

Due to current laws, all products containing components with known harmful substances have to disclose to the consumer. In this case the components containing a trace of lead do not come in contact with your consumable beverage. Now, if you were to eat the coffee maker in its entirety at a rate of say ten thousand a day every day for 1000 years you might have a few percent greater chance of developing cancer. Lng winded way t say "No worries".... Eric
